The Bean's Disaster

The title is probably gonna get some heat from the Mods but oh well. I just read through the entire Beans/Brute debacle and had some questions maybe a tech could answer or one of the many qualified "Train horn installers".

Would 240+ EOT have anything to his plastic IPR screen to break apart? i know plastic becomes brittle when exposed to high heat then cooled.

In the 6.0 every thing is monitoring temps i cant believe no one was wondering about EGT's or would this have less of an effect then i think it would? (i.e. warped heads, cracked exhaust seats, warped manifolds, or turbo issues.

There was only one post about injector issues and i was concerned from the get go about the HPO system, I cant believe prolonged 250 degree oil would not wreck the top injector o-rings, or at least stretch the oil rail hold down bolts.

I hope that beans ended up taking care of that poor guy, im not sure
why the thread was closed bc i have seen lots of 40 page threads that are much older that but thats besides the point ( a mod can pm it they have any insight to a policy i missed)

The reason that thread was shutdown was because there wasn't any point in taking it further. They were at an impasse and everyone else was only there for the drama.

No, the plastic on the IPR's are designed for MUCH higher temps so 240*F EOT's wouldn't have had any affect on the plastic. The 6.0 heads will develop cracks in the exhaust seats even with stock tuning, so EGT's, while they play a factor, have a much more pronounced effect on the turbo. High EGT's are a result from improper airflow (or too much fueling in the case of tuning) and will cause the turbo to get hot, causing the oil that lubricates the turbo to get hot. A properly functioning oil cooler SHOULD be able to offload that heat with little problem. These engines were designed to defuel at 253*F, but they can go much higher than that.
